East LA preschool teaches toddlers gratitude every day

Teacher, Mia Castro, reads a book to her preschool class at the East Los Angeles College Child Development Center. Teaching concepts of thankfulness, gratitude and appreciation happen year-round, not just at Thanksgiving time.

It's the time of the year where we all give thanks for what we have -- our families, our homes and the food on the table. At one preschool in East LA, those lessons start early and ways before Thanksgiving.

KPCC's Deepa Fernandes spent a morning there to learn how toddlers are taught to be grateful.
